Hi everyone,

This is my first topic here so please forgive me if it could have been better placed
elsewhere.

I'm trying to learn Lithuanian but there doesn't seem to be many resources. Has anyone
had any success with any websites/programmes? :)

Lithuanian is an interesting language.

1) I have used the Teach Yourself collection. It might give you a brief insight about
the language (it contains audio).

2) Colloquial Lithuanian by Routledge.
I think the texts are good and well selected. You can get some insight about the basic
vocabulary (at least I considered so) you will need for further courses, but perhaps
the authors could work a bit more with the grammar explanations and exercises provided.

9)This is also a grammar book:

10) Stumbrienė V., Vilkienė L., Roebuck W.

I am not fan of this kind of books, but still an option for some students.

I could give you a few more references, but before, you might take a look at the other
options below. I forgot to mention one book I used, but I cannot remember now.

There are channels available on Youtube:
https://www.youtube.com/user/kristytamo/featured
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1JZFw7K0e5j7VVbF0UERBA

They should help you a little bit.

As for other websites I have used so far:

These are some courses:

http://www.oneness.vu.lt/
http://www.debeselis.net/
http://www.slic.org.au/Language/LLL_index.swf
http://ikindalikelanguages.com/labs/courses.php?id=33


A podcast (It is not that frequently updated, but I find it very good):
http://www.lithuanian.libsyn.com/


Forum:

http://www.unilang.org/viewforum.php?f=64


Other websites:
http://www.ucl.ac.uk/atlas/lithuanian/language.html
http://www.lituanus.org/1982_1/82_1_01.htm
http://postilla.mch.mii.lt/Kalba/kalbarast.en.htm
http://www.thelithuanians.com/school.html

Online dictionary:

I am not sure how good it is, though:
http://www.zodynas.lt/

It might sound ridiculous, but you can try to grasp some words listening to some songs.
Some people I know who is learning Lithuanian have suggested me taking Lauris Reiniks'
songs sung in Lithuanian.

That's all for now. I will think about other resources such as radio, TV, newspapers
etc in case you might be interested.

The classic textbook is 'Introduction to Modern Lithuanian' by Dambriunas, Klimas and Schmalstieg. It's very solid on grammar and things like the accent system.
